Countess Walewsky? A descendant of Napoleon and Maria Walewska?
Didn't that family die out in the male line years ago?

Napoleon and Maria's son adopted his own illegitimate son and has many descendants through him. He had a son by his second wife who didn't have any children and I'm not sure if his son by his first wife has descendants. The title definitely still exists.

This is a family website. It's in French but there is a family tree in one section.

Edited to add: Looks like you can click over to English on some pages.

I was wondering, are all members of house Murat ranked as His/Her Highness or are they, aside from the head and heir, Serene Highnesses?

According to Burke's Royal Families of the World: Volume 1 Europe & Latin America, all are Highnesses:
The head of the family is styled 8th Prince Murat (numbering from King Joachim); the other members of the family bear the title of PRINCE (or PRINCESS) before their christian names and have the qualification of Highness (granted by Emperor Napoleon III 1853)

Prince Charles Napoleon visited the exhibition 'Alexander, Napoleon and Josephine, a story of friendship, war and art from the Hermitage'. The exhibition takes place in the Amsterdam affiliate of the Russian Hermitage.

After the exhibition, the prince visited the Amsterdam Museum. It was formerly the Amsterdam Historic Museum, though some marketing person probably forced the museum to drop the 'historic' from the name. Maybe they will change it to 'Amsterdam Experience' soon . Anyway, I digress...
In the museum he saw the painting ' the entry of Napoleon in Amsterdam'.

The prince is the chairman of the European federation of Napoleontic cities. Amsterdam was one of the three capitals of Napoleon's empire.

Princess Alix Napoleon was promoted from a knight to an officer in the Legion d'Honneur.

She received the order from general Georgelin, the grand chancellor of the order.

On May 5th prince Jean Christophe Napoleon, his grand mother Alix and his mother Beatrice of the Two Sicilies attended a mass in the church of Saint Louis des Invalides in Paris to commemorate emperor Napoleon. The prince was accompanied by former French president Valéry Giscard d’Estaing.
